Solar Power Australia’s conversion of a DeLorean DMC-12 to a performance Electric Vehicle was completed in June 2012. We are pleased to say that the conversion was a success with the electric drive providing much better performance than the V6 petrol engine.
Our DMCEV Electric DeLorean is charged from outlets in solar powered buildings or our mobile solar trailer. As such, this electric vehicle is EMISSION FREE!
